The Atlanta Business Chronicle is reporting Aflac plans a $100 million venture capital fund over three years to invest in early-stage companies developing products and software related to Aflac’s core business.
Aflac Corporate Ventures plans to partner with technology accelerators to identify and invest in early-stage companies, helping them accelerate innovation across the insurance value chain, including digital technology that enhances the customer experience. Aflac Corporate Ventures will maintain offices in Charlotte, N.C., and in Sunnyvale, Calif., as part of a partnership agreement with a technology accelerator.
